Chargers WR Travis Benjamin continues to stand out

Tuesday, August 15, 2017, 12:57pm

ESPN 1500 - [Full Article]

Travis Benjamin has been one of the breakout performers through the first two weeks of training camp, making big plays on a regular basis.

And that continued in last weekend’s preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks. Benjamin got behind Seattle’s secondary and Kellen Clemens hit him in stride for a 74-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.

Related players: Keenan Allen, Antonio Gates, Hunter Henry

Fantasy Impact:

Benjamin is now fully healthy from a PCL knee sprain and says he has a better understanding of the offense which has given him more confidence. The hope for the Chargers is Benjamin's vertical threat opens up room for Allen, Gates and Henry.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The equation for Gates in 2017 isn't complicated. Did he score? That's about it. Only 11 yards on 2 catches last week but he found the end zone. He's only averaging 3.5 targets per game, making him a straight gamble for your starting lineups that we do not recommend.
